    Icons on Win NT desktop changed to some ugly icon on every folder on the desktop.
    Looked in folder options, can't figure out how to change, everything looks fine in settings.
    How can I change it.
    Sorry for bein brief, at work.
    Answer asap thanks:!:

    It seems that every folder has been associated with winzip.
    Can't see how to change this in winzip, all seems fine.

    Any ideas.

    Change the associations mate - open explorer, tools, folder options, file types tab.

    Most programs (or program writers for that matter) are arrogant enough to assume that the file types they use should be associated with them - which is annoying. Simple matter to dive into the above and associate the file types with the program you want.

    My 2p..

    I will have a go tomorrow.
    She reckons she didn't install winzip or hasn't used it recently.

    Tbh I gave up exasperated, as two other people suddenly turned up thinking they knew the answer, when in fact they hadn't got a f*&%^in clue :x
    I wont even tell you what they were trying, in order to sort it.

    I may have a go tomorrow, it'll get me out of work for a few mins at least :rolleyes:

    Thanks for the help.

    Edit: I told her to reboot, but she said she was too busy with stuff.Suit herself I suppose.

    The programs icons are opening in the correct program.
    The icons are the only thing that's wrong.

    Some supergeek came along and cleared the icon cache or summit, which didn't work hahaaaa:!::twisted:

    Too true, BOFH is compulsory reading. It's nice to live out the fantasy of burying users under the comms room floor through BOFH :)

    One of the senior IT guys was passing through the office today, so I told the woman who's comp has been iconozized to ask him because he should know more than most others.
    He looked at it for about thirty mins, and I heard him mention a profile problem (which I at first mentioned :D ) when asked to fix it myself.
    I couldn't make out a lot of what he was saying because I was too busy trying to look too busy.
    Anyway he said that the machine was deranged and it'd need replacing, beyond repair, off to the big computer fair in the sky, mors ultima linea rerum est, off to the knackers yard, nada, no more, hasta la vista, move over xp's on the way, thanks for the memories, all 64 MB's of them.
    It's fooked.:!:

    Some guy said it was something to do with the printer *looks up in bewilderment to the grey clouds which are beginning to weep on my behalf*
    Another said try and turn the monitor on and off.Seriously I'm not making these up, god I wish I was.
    "It's a security setting" :wtf: the wise man said from yonder behind the massing crowd. "Oh and beware the ides of Mar" I thankfully cut in to tell him to shut up, the stupid pilchard.

    There now, is everyone entertained :D

    Thanks for the laugh flex. Personally I think the machine is just a bit confused and may sort itself out when rebooted. :rolleyes:
